IFSA Worlds was in Iceland last year, just fyi… The venue wasn’t very cool though as it was held inside an aluminum plant or something.
I was thinking more along the lines of the WSM competition on 1992. Aluminium plant - errrm. Ill pass. lol/
I agree with you, I like the events IFSA has more for the most part but the TV production/Vernues are much better for Met-RX Worlds. After watching it over this weekend there is ALOT that goes into the TV production.
O hell yeah - im much more IFSA for sure. WSM looks good though - a nice finished product. Arnold has it for me though. Its the only chance we get to see the feds combined and savikas eats everyone. Awesome.
Yeah I am making sure to go to the Arnold next year.
BTW, Where do you find all the cool strongman pics?
I am pretty sure that picture of Magnus is from '03 in Zambia when they didn’t allow tacky on the stones. Magnus dropped the first stone but recovered quickly and tore through the rest and still took first in the stones, truly awesome perormance.
Am I right?
The Ironmind site is best for random strongman pics. I have a fair collection of strength athletes, male and female - not just strongmen. There are several sites i seemed to stumble on those rather than find them purposely.
The only guy I struggle to find decent pictures of is Savikas, which is a shame as he’s number 1 in my eyes.
Ahola is probably an all time favourite. What about yourself?[/quote]
Ahola is probably my favorite as well, along with Kaz, Jon Pall, etc…
Watching Ahola work for WSM last week you can tell the guy just has an insane work ethic. He is alot smaller and had a full beard going, still not small though, I think he is working on a new movie.
I have always been a fan of the shorter smaller framed strongmen. Like Jarek Dymek, I am a big time fan of Dymek now as on Saturday he sat at the table next to me during lunch and I had a very cool conversation with him.
Ive found some decent pictures of Savickas, here are a ton of photos from IFSA Worlds earlier this month I saw posted on another website.
